Wheat and Small Grains

Farm Economics

Diverse climate and soil types throughout the Pacific Northwest allow this region to be one of the most viable regions for grain production in the nation, but reliance on inputs to control soil fertility and pests make organic grain farming difficult and often, economically unsustainable. Organic production of small grain and cereal crops occurs on very few acres in the Inland Pacific Northwest, mainly due to the challenges of controlling weeds and maintaining plant nutrients. Yet, demand for organic grains and forage crops is increasing and many opportunities exist for growers interested in producing high quality organic grain, cereal and forage.
